Customer Question
I just put a...

I just put a head gasket kit in my Holset compressor and it is not pumping now. I think I may have not installed the unloader parts correctly.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

Customer:(###) ###-#### ss 296 sn 1J1990M

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

I put the head gaskets on and I probably didn't get the unloader valve parts correctly

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?

That is it
